FOLKLORISSIMO - BRUSSELS

Each third weekend in September, Brussels celebrates its Folklore Festival under the name "Folklorissimo"  A folk village is built in the center of the Grand'Place and is animated by processions in costumes, games, tastings of food and beer and other activities offered by the brotherhoods. Brussels also invites each year a guest country to introduce its folklore and culture.

Unfortunately it probably won't take place this year because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

I used to go there every year, it's just such a funny event on this beautiful place.

Found you through Our World Tuesday. This looks like a fun festival. That is too bad that it was cancelled this year (understandable due to the circumstances but still sad!).

I posted about Europe this week too: Our trip to Minori in the Amalfi Coast, if interested!
